An Evening of Jazz with the Lucky 5
Time: 5:00 pm-6:00 pm
We’ll have a dance floor in the Great Hall for the Lucky 5, a hard-swinging jazz band that blends swing and gypsy jazz to create a unique, foot-stomping blend of music. The Lucky 5 performs both original compositions as well as old jazz standards with a new spin. The band is comprised of highly seasoned touring musicians, having been part of The Hunger Mountain Boys and Lauren Ambrose & The Leisure Class. They have traveled, performed, and recorded with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Tony Bennett, Neko Case, Iris Dement, Bobby Previte, Del McCoury, and Jim Lauderdale, just to name a few. The Lucky 5 brings verve, high energy, and an unpredictable impulse to the tradition of jazz from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, grooving deeply, and keeping feet moving on the dance floor.
